We accept the 'Duty of Care' imposed by legislation as the minimum standard to be set and maintained, and we aim to develop a sustainable business that is financially viable, environmentally sustainable, and socially equitable.

Environmental Policy

The Company's Environmental Policy will be reviewed regularly to make sure that it continues to meet or exceed current standards.

We aim to prevent pollution and minimise the impact our operations have on the environment through:

·       Minimizing our business travel and focusing on greener travel where possible including the use of electric vehicles and sophisticated delivery planning systems.

·       reducing the consumption of fossil fuels and incorporating long-term strategies for energy efficiency into planning and development

·       Reducing our consumption of resources such as paper.

·       Minimising the volume of waste generated and maximising the reuse/reduce, recycling, and energy recovery from waste.

·       Continually reassessing changing technology, business requirements, and best environmental practices.

Our commitment means that all staff at every level of the Company will strive to meet minimum standards, as set by the Company from time to time for:

·       Recording the use of raw materials and other supplies

·       Recording the safe environmentally acceptable disposal of waste materials

·       Finding new methods of waste disposal that are more environmentally acceptable than existing methods.

·       Reducing energy usage to a minimum level where possible

·       Advising customers on the Company's Environmental Policy and the best practise use of hired goods that may have an impact on the environment

·       Assessing supplier's compliance with the Company's Environmental Policy

·       Maintaining a "good neighbour" approach to the local community and aim to support local environment initiatives where possible

·       Carry out environmental impact assessments as part of any new initiative on the part of the Company
